Florida healthcare faces $543 million gap in House and Senate showdown

from Tampa Bay Times

The Florida House and Senate will have to resolve a $543 million budget disagreement on healthcare funds to reach a balanced budget this year, centered again on a recurring dispute over how to reimburse hospitals for providing Medicaid care across the state. House and Senate healthcare budget leaders released initial proposals for the state's six agencies that need their funding approval, with Senate Republicans rolling out a $37.7 billion initial plan that in part looks to restructure how Medicaid reimbursements are distributed to hospitals in the state. House Republicans a day earlier had said they intended to allocate nearly $37.2 billion to the state's healthcare operations, in part by trimming hospital Medicaid reimbursement spending by about $110 million. more
